The tiny town of San Pedro de los Saguaros needs a new Mayor, as the populace has assassinated several. As a reward for his party loyalty, the ruling governor gives hapless junk dealer Damián Alcázar the post. An honest if idealistic man, Vargas arrives with his beautiful, ambitious wife Gloria. Picked for his stupidity, he quickly discovers that bribes, blackmail, gratuitous fines, and other abuses of authority are the only way to get things done, and soon transforms himself from ineffectual stooge to paragon of corruption--or, a successful politician. Along the way, he encounters a surly madam, a moralizing doctor, a mercenary priest, and an opportunistic gringo. He justifies his actions with a motto learned from his party leader, who quotes Herod's Law, which is (if somewhat reworded), "Either you screw them or you get screwed."

En esta historia hay algo que encaja y algo que no encaja. Encaja que Santiago se levante como cualquier mañana, que su familia al completo le este esperando en la cocina de su casa, que le cante el cumpleaños feliz cuando aparece por la puerta, que le bese, le haga regalos, le gaste bromas, cariños. Lo que ya no encaja es que a Santiago no le guste el regalo de su hijo pequeño, que no le crea cuando le dice que le quiere y que por eso, solo por eso, le grite, le ponga en la calle y exija otro hijo mejor, que no lleve gafas y que no este tan gordo. Y a ser posible, se le parezca un poquito

Jeden Montag nehmen Santa und seine Freunde, drei ehemalige Arbeitskollegen, die Fähre in die Stadt. Da ist Lino, der sich zu alt für einen neuen Job glaubt. Da ist José, der sich nicht damit abfinden kann, dass seine Frau Ana nun für den Unterhalt alleine aufkommt. Und da ist schliesslich Santa mit der grossen Klappe und ebenso grossem Herz. Er hat einen Prozess für eine kaputte Strassenlampe, die an einer Demo zu Bruch ging, am Hals und träumt von Australien. Dorthin möchte er auswandern, dort hat es Arbeit, Geld, Frauen. Santa ist ein Herzensbrecher. Seine unbekannte, sanftere Seite lernen jene Frauen kennen, die seinem Witz und seinem Charme erliegen. Jede Woche reihen sich Santa und seine Freunde in die Schlange auf dem Arbeitsamt ein, seit ihre Jobs im Schiffsbau gestrichen wurden. Und jede Woche treffen sie sich zu einem Gläschen in Ricos Bar Naval. Dort sinnieren sie über die Vergangenheit und eine bessere Zukunft. Doch den Humor und die kleinen Dinge, die das Leben lebenswert machen, das kann ihnen niemand wegnehmen. Und auch nicht die Träume, die sie montags an der Sonne träumen
